Real City Matters

Join us for a series of panel discussions about the state of our city, and how we can have more honest, constructive conversations about its future.



Extra, Extra: Cocaine, Mayors in Waiting, and New Tourism Slogans

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.


  • Fresh off denying that he grabbed a woman’s ass, Mayor Rob Ford may now need to assure the public that he doesn’t do coke. That’s because of something his accuser, one-time mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson, said this morning on KiSS 92.5.
  • Toronto Life‘s profile of MP Oliva Chow, “mayor in waiting,” is now online, if you’d like to spend 15 minutes or so daydreaming about what life would be like if city hall were run by someone else. The next mayoral campaign should be getting underway about nine months from now.
  • Now that Toronto has edged out Chicago as North America’s fourth-largest city by population, the Post has some suggestions for new tourism posters and slogans. We’re partial to “The Honourable Mention of Cities.”
  • Kensington Market is apparently getting a brewery in place of that weird theatre space whose entire facade is covered in alien-themed van art. Seems like a fair trade.
